It wasn't the most glorious or pretty of passes (872/849) but nevertheless it was a pass.
Planning and designing 100%
Implementation and operation 75%
One gets the feeling that a question wrong could of failed me again as my first attempt I failed on (847/849)
So it?s poetic justice and after nine months of study I finally can chuck out the bent, dirtied ugly study books and breathe a sigh of relief.
Where from here? Perhaps CCNP or the security certification I?m not sure.
Good luck to all you future CCNA takers.
